How to make Crepes

My boys LOVE Crepes! They can eat them everyday if I let them, so I found this easy recipe that I have been using for couple years now 😉 It’s quick and easy to make. Here are the ingredients:

2 Eggs

3/4 cup Milk (I use almond milk but any milk will work)

1/2 cup Water

1 cup Flour

3 tbs. melted Butter

2 1/2 tbs. Sugar

1 tsp. Vanilla

2 drops of Young Living Orange Vitality Oil (optional and make sure it’s Young Living ONLY, you can get them here).

Ningxia Berry Syrup or Maple Syrup

In a large mixing bowl, whisk together the first 3 ingredients. Gradually add in the flour and butter, stirring to combine. Add the sugar and vanilla and tangerine oil, mix until smooth.

Heat a lightly buttered griddle or frying pan over medium high heat. Pour about 1/4 a cup of the batter onto the griddle. Tilt the pan with a circular motion so that the batter coats the surface evenly.

Cook the crepe for about 2 minutes, until the bottom is light brown. Loosen with a spatula, turn and cook the other side.

Pour about 1 tbs of the syrup and spread it around and roll it up! So EASY and quick!
